  • Place: Sotoliva Warehouse
  • Organized by: Port Authority of Santander (APS)
  • Curated by: Carlos Limorti

Since the end of 2022, the Port of Santander has recovered the Nave Sotoliva as an exhibition hall. The reopening of the hall has as protagonist the exhibition PORTUARIA: Does the Port have an Art Collection, made entirely with port funds. At the opening, the president of the APS, Francisco Martin, explained that the basis of the celebration of the 150th anniversary of the Port has been "the reuse of materials, works of art and port spaces that were underutilized and now will have a citizen use". The president of the APS said that this building becomes part of the list of assets of the Port that "have been recovered for public use", stressing that, "thanks to the events developed on the occasion of the celebration of the 150th anniversary", the APS "has put in value not only spaces such as the Archive, the Maritime Station or the Nave Sotoliva but has reused technical materials in the musical performances of Show Hall and has restored some of the works of art that can be seen in this exhibition".
